    • Long Term Accommodation in Nijmegen surrounding - What should I expect?

      Provincie Gelderland Jun 2, 2015 at 6:53 PM

      Hi everyone,

      We are a family of 3 from Canada with a one year old child. We are planning to move to in the Nijmegen surroundings. I would like to know what should I expect in terms of difficulties of finding a 2 or 3 bedroom apartment within 30-40 minutes from Radboud university, rent price etc.

      I've heard that you can get a subsidy from the Dutch government if you are a student and have an independent apartment not exceeding 650 EUR rent per month, how realistic is to find an apartment not exceeding this limit?

      Please note that our baby sleeps with us in the same bed, it is Ok if we have to go with only 1 bedroom as long as it's not smaller than 60m2.

    • [Wadden Islands] Texel - Vlieland - Terschelling by ferry+ bike in one day?

      Netherlands Jun 24, 2015 at 5:33 AM


      If someone knows those islands, I was wondering how realistic it is to 1) take the first ferry in the morning to go from the mainland to Texel, then 2) take ferries to hop to Vlieland and Terschelling, 3) take the last ferry back to the mainland at Harlingen, and then 4) catch a train to Groningen.

      I'll have a (folding) bike with me.

      Thank you.

      In late July-early August, I will be driving from Kolding, Denmark, to Antwerp, Belgium, and back. I'd like to do it in a leisurely fashion, taking a couple of days each way. My preferences are for villages, towns, and smaller cities, pleasant scenery, interesting museums, good restaurants. I've visited Amsterdam, Utrecht, Delft, and Den Haag repeatedly, but I'd like to see more of the surrounding country. I don't know 's-Hertogen-Bosch, Nijmegen, Deventer, or Arnhem. Been to Eindhoven and don't need to return. Thoughts from natives or other travelers? Nederlands spreek ik. Deutsch spreche ich auch. So non-touristy places are fine.

      Hi... I've joined this site in a desperate attempt to get some information before I travel alone for the first time in August! I'm travelling to Detroit, through Sciphol, and I'm very nervous about it after hearing that it's such a huge airport. How will I know where to go, how do I know where my next gate is and how to find it? I've read about schengen and non schengen areas but don't know what this means in relation to security checks etc for me! It's all very stressful, please help!
